Do you help run a club or charity that benefits older people? Do you have a specific project that you’d like to get off the ground?
Cosyfeet, the company that makes extra roomy footwear for swollen feet, is offering an award of £750 as part of their Community Project Award. It’s available to registered charities or not-for-profit organisations working on community projects within Britain that support and enrich older people’s lives.
Many of Cosyfeet’s customers are over 65, an age group often affected by loneliness and isolation. With this in mind, Cosyfeet supports an initiative for older people each year with the Cosyfeet Community Project Award.
“Our award is available to community projects that benefit older people and provide them with a sense of community,” says Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “We support projects that offer practical and emotional support, keep older people active or give them the chance to socialise.”
Swanage Disabled Club were the proud winners of last year’s Cosyfeet Community Project Award. This wonderful charity used the money to rent a sea front beach hut for its members, to coincide with the Swanage Carnival and Regatta.
To enter for the Cosyfeet Community Project Award 2018 apply online at:www.cosyfeet.com/communityprojectawardor call for an application form on 01458 447275. The closing date for entries is 31st July 2018. The winning organisation will be announced in September.
in the USA Tortilla Chip Day is celebrated on February 24, 2018. A tortilla chip is a snack food made from corn tortillas, which are cut into wedges and then fried. Alternatively they may be discs pressed out of corn masa then fried or baked. Corn tortillas are made of corn, vegetable oil, salt and water.Tortilla chips are the quintessential and often complimentary appetizer in Tex-Mex and Mexican restaurants in the U.S. and elsewhere. Although first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the late 1940s, tortilla chips were always considered to be a Mexican food, known as tostados. Though usually made of yellow corn, they can also be made of white, blue, or red corn. Some manufacturers include many other ingredients including wheat, sugar, and MSG
The triangle shaped tortilla chip was popularized by Rebecca Webb Carranza as a way to make use of misshapen tortillas rejected from the automated tortilla manufacturing machine that she and her husband used at their Mexican delicatessen and tortilla factory in southwest Los Angeles. Carranza found that the discarded tortillas, cut into triangles and fried, were a popular snack.
